We teach the whole subject of art so you can relax. Featuring art instruction, art history, and art technique in a homeschool art program that encourages creative participation.
With ARTistic Pursuits, you leave the lesson planning to us and you won't have to wonder if you've covered the right topics. We present lessons at each age level to give your children learning opportunities that fit their needs as growing artists and expand their visual experiences. As you relax and rely on the text to teach art, your child will:
- develop observation skills that are vital to becoming proficient in the arts
- learn creative thinking skills
- produce artworks that are uniquely their own, not a copy-by-following example, but one-of-a-kind creations.
As your child applies the concepts presented in each lesson of these award winning books, your child is
- wholly engaged
- participating in the mindset of an artist
"I'm not exaggerating in the least when I say that from the first project, the whole family was hooked...we love this curriculum. It's the whole package in one easy simple-to-teach format." -Homeschool Mom, Laurie Gauger / Illinois
Art gives our children a voice.
In our approach, children SEE techniques demonstrated, then select a subject of their own and apply the process to their own ideas. True learning happens as they understand and use the concepts presented in the materials. Even the youngest student is creating art that is personal. Art is far more than imitation; it is a language that allows the doers, our children, to speak for themselves and to express their own ideas and interests through pictures.
With art skills, our children are given a voice. Children of all ages can show and share with others what they see and think about the world around them. By teaching art purposefully, we expand their awareness of their surroundings, of nature, and of the people they share the planet with: their friends and family.
"We LOVE Art For Children, Building a Visual Vocabulary. I love the thorough instruction and my kids love creating amazing works of art! They enjoyed watching the instructional video and even watched each lesson 3 times before starting their pieces. It brought a smile to my heart..." -Brittany Marshall, author of Memoirs of a Good Thing
"I really appreciate the way text and videos are written in a clear and precise way so as not to be daunting to us non-artists." Kellyann Walker, author of Walking Home...
